Commentary

So that's it from the first match. The next match starts in an hour from now and it's between Sangakkara's team and Sangakkara's team. Over to the other side. Ciao ciao.

Misbah, who flew in from Zimbabwe yesterday, says, "It was a very nice pitch to bat, but we didn't make a good start. As a professional, you have to adjust and play."

McCullum says that there was some help for the bowlers available which their bowlers used well.

Otago Volts have produced a strong performance to brush Faisalabad Wolves aside. As is the case, whenever Baz gets into his innings, he is hard to stop. Wolves lacked intensity in batting and a lot more was expected from their bowling, but there wasn't much in it today. In the end, the batting depended too much on Misbah, the bowling looked too dependent on Ajmal. For Volts, their bowling was economical, their fielding expectedly top notch and their batting looks very strong as well. On the evidence of what we have seen today, Volts are going to be a team to watch. Faisalabad are not out of it. They still have two more matches, which they need to win.

Imran: "Anyone else think that Ajmal might be on the verge of rage-quitting the sport? Dropped catches, misfields, constantly bailing out teams that let him down... such a thankless job"

Asad Ali to McCullum, FOUR runs, bowls a slower delivery which is a low full-toss, the batsman just slices it over the infield. The fielder at deep cover runs in and realises that he has misjudged it soon as it goes over his head to the boundary
